Their bodies are probably in shock having been exposed to real natural fiber and fructose for the first time.
Also, I think I was 4 when I learned my lesson about eating too many green apples.
Kids these days.

Probably swallowed some apple seeds...them things are loaded with toxins.

/If you ever swallow the seeds, smoke some cigarettes...the smoke will suffocate the bacteria in your stomach.

The teacher gave them apples and made them sick? Clearly, she's mean and evil through and through.

Physically sickened? Pansy-assed fandroids.

No, it's news in Southeast Washington. Now it's on Fark so it's not news. Catch up for Christ's sake.

Wouldn't you have to swallow the smoke as the idea of smoking is associated with breathing? I mean, I've never heard of anyone dying of stomach cancer from smoking.

Not only that, but the toxic agent in apple seeds (and mango and a few others) is a cyanide compound. It would take way more than a few seeds. Also, these kids complained of stomach aches. Cyanide poisoning has to do with inhibiting the ability to use oxygen (something something iron in blood being bonded with Cyanide or something).

Lee said the apples did not come from the school's cafeteria. Lee said he did not know how many students ate the apples.

Sounds like they need to talk to someone besides Lee.

I'm so glad to find out it is Washington DC, which is not at all obvious. It's probably residual cocaine from politicians picking them over in the produce aisle.

Washington State apples are probably not poison as a rule. Unless there's a Starbucks within 30 feet.

I am going to say it's just a stomach flu. It was just coincidence they happened to have the teacher's apples the same day.

Apple seeds are loaded with cyanide, but you'd have to eat a fark-ton of them to even get sick from them.

Let me just say that this headline--combined with the deadpan "sick" tag--is an understated winner to me and worthy of recognition in some sort of regular best headline event.

Wikipedia: In 2003 a major instance of mercury being spread throughout the school caused for its closure for several weeks and the redirection of students and staff to nearby educational facilities.

On February 2, 2004, 19-year-old Thomas J. Boykin fatally shot 17-year-old James Richardson. ... Another shooting on August 26, 2008 of a 16-year old just off the campus grounds results in a lockdown of the campus. This comes after a spree of violence in and around the school.


But:

In addition to an outstanding band and choir, Ballou is known as one of the best athletic programs in the area.

So there's that.

Oh god, warn someone when you link to a brony thread.

That picture totally makes up for it though.

Then again the reason I looked was because of how good that picture was.

Damn that picture! is good.

Headline: "Three Ballou High School students sickened by apples"

Body: "But city officials said the cause of the ailments remains under investigation, and that "apples have not been identified as the source of the illness.""

Journalism is hard work.

It's gotta be the apples. It's always the apples. Journalistic FACT.

Speaking of catching up, being on Fark now means that it's "Real news. Real funny". The it's-not-news version of Fark is long gone. You'll get over it. Tastes like chicken.
